Thanks for stopping by the house of GLORYDAZE Music. We're into melodic rock and AOR in a big way! If you don't know what AOR is, then you're probably at the wrong website. Anyone with a modicum of rock music knowledge going back to the lazy days of the late 60's and into the 70's up until the current day will surely feel at home here. With an excess of 5000 album reviews in the system, there is something here for the hard rock fan, prog rock supporter, or heavy metal fiend! Have a look around, and feel free to register if you want to contribute to the website, or drop us a comment or two. Cheers.. GDM

This is the second release from Aussie pop/West Coast singer/songwiter Troy Newman. Troy first captured our attention on the excellent debut from 1991 called 'Gypsy Moon'. That album came out of nowhere and had big backing behind it. As the story goes, Troy was plucked from virtual obscurity in his homeland Australia, firstly as a 15 year old in Perth, then later Sydney, and shipped off to LA to work in with some seasoned LA session kings, primarily with Waddy Wachtel. That album was a great mixture of AOR, pop, and southern tinged R&B, though it took four years to follow that up with this one 'It's Like This'. The music has changed, in that it has become more mellow, and operates in the same area as John Cougar Mellancamp
, and a softer version of Venice
. The image has changed markedly too. Gone is the boy next door look, in favour of a more unkempt look a la Michael Hutchence
(R.I.P). I wonder if Troy caught got in all the trappings of temptation while in L.A? One could easily imagine that he did..
'The Missing Years' is the opening track, and is lovely number fuelled by some sparse mandolin lines in between. The title track 'It's Like This' is a subtle and gentle song, while the energy picks up significantly on 'World Gone Crazy'. 'William Street' has some interesting guitar lines preceding it, though is spoilt somewhat by a nothing chorus. 'Something About You' is a pleasant upbeat track, while 'Don't Make Me Ask' is an atmospheric song with lovely heartfelt verses. 'Gotta Get Away' is a brash blues workout while the album closer 'I Go To Pieces' is an acoustic effort which to my ears is not particularly inspiring. This one has been covered by some other artists but I haven't heard their versions.
An OK album but somewhat lacking the spark that made 'Gypsy Moon' a far superior effort. Nothing was heard of Newman in the music scene since, though he was reportedly doing some musical theatre work back home in Australia. Unfortunately, Troy took ill during the late 90's, and contracted a very bad case of Hepatitis A, which I am sure resulted in his death during 1998, Troy passing away in his sleep. Despite Troy's demise, it would have been pleasing for him to note that in his songwriting capacity, some of his songs were covered by other artists, and some have appeared on movie soundtracks as well. R.I.P Troy.
